I’m one of those people who thinks (some, anyway) rats are kind of cute. I don’t think I’d have one for a pet but I know people who have and I’m not totally freaked out by them like some people are.
If you’re a fan of rats or just want to stitch up a little critter in celebration of the year of the rat, check out this cute pattern from Bracelet Book. It’s not strictly a cross-stitch design, but it is worked on a grid so it’s all the same.
This design by user emcore would use four colors in cross stitch. And if you happen to like beadweaving you can use the map on that page to do it.[Photo via Bracelet Book.]
